H ffii Aftom* WORD-A45AY By BACH [MME^THCLASTOF YOUR . INHERITANCE! prodial GIVEN TO WASTEFUL (EXPENDITURE; ADDICT ED EXTRAVAGANCE AND. ;A*,A PROOK3ALSOM 4-5 Nixon urged to reconsider voting reform O Associated Press WASHINGTON - President Nixon is being urged by key 'House Republicans to recon" rider his position on electoral reform and endorse direct popular presidential elections. - Nixon has expressed a con; viction that a direct election amendment could not be rati- *fied by the necessary 38 states, although he said he would prefer it. Pie advised Congress to work for a compromise reform measure." THE PRESIDENT'S position is one of potential embarrassment for the GOP congressmen, many of whom not only favor a direct election amendment themselves, but feel it has the best chance of being adopted. They are particularly unenthusiastic about the alternative proposed by Nixon, which would divide a state's electoral votes among presidential candidates in proportion to their popular vote. In fact, Nixon's proposal as outlined in a message to Congress and in testimony to the House Judiciary Committee by Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell, has had almost no impact in the House. Of the 15 Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, between 8 and 10 are now reportedly inclined to favor direct elections. With at least 16 of the 20 committee Democrats taking a similar stand, the committee appears ready to give a direct election amendment overwhelming approval when it gets down to work on the issue after the congressional Easter recess. . IT'S AT THIS stage — after the committee has acted and the amendment needs to win a two-thirds majority in the House — that the Republicans say they hope Nixon will endorse a direct election amendment. When he appeared before the committee, Mitchell said Nixon would stay out of the picture until both the House and Senate had acted but that he would then get behind anything they approved. Some committee Republicans and other influential GOP members are now trying to convince Mitchell that the President's leadership position would be enhanced if he helped steer the amendment through Congress rather than waiting. They are known to be arguing in private talks with Mitchell that the great majority of the public favors direct elections and that Nixon can only gain in public favor by pressing for such an amendment. •Hi mUrtM » tdvifti takinc O(«H m iimnm HUM 7th toum I Jjttiwy Home Raid 7tE"su«*»*C«nd«l«Avenu» *t*MVf MtUITAT GMtfUtRoeserRo ftfertl p*«otlt ioiur«nc« Corp. Nixon's brother, Edward, appointed to $30,000 post in Alaska Associated Press WASHINGTON - The Commerce Department announced yesterday the appointment of President Nixon's brother, Edward C. Nixon, to a $30,000-a-year post on Alaskan development. Secretary of Commerce Maurice H. Stans said Nixon will be chairman of the Federal Field Committee for Development Planning in Alaska, which coordinates federal and state programs to devel- op the economy and resources of the state. The committee is similar to the Federal Regional Development Commission operating in other parts of the nation such as the Appalachian Regional Commission. Nixon, 38, "has a long interest in the North Pacific Basin," the Commerce Department announcement said. "He traveled extensively throughout Alaska on a personal tour of the state in 1962, and twice has served In administrative capacities with the Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone Co. in Seattle." The announcement described Nixon as an administrator and graduate geologist with considerable skills as an analyst of aerial photographs of geological deposits. Nixon assisted his brother's bid for the presidency by managing mail operations of the Nixon - for - President committee in New York. In 196? and 1968, he was a commercial staff supervisor for Pacific Northwest Bell, having previously served the company as a communications consultant and administration personnel assistant. From 1964 to 1967, the department said, Nixon was employment supervisor for Bellcom Inc. of Washington, securing technical specialists to act as consultants to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Nixon, who is married and has two children, is a graduate of Duke University. He has a master's degree in geological engineering from North Carolina State University.
